World Art: Jean Carzou (Born 1907, Aleppo, Syria – Died 2000 Marsac-sur-l'Isle, Dordogne, France), born Garnik Zouloumian, was a French-Armenian artist. Jean arrived in Paris in 1924 to study architecture. He started working as a theater decorator but he then quickly realized he preferred drawing and painting. In 1938, more than a hundred exhibitions of his works were organized in Paris, in the French provinces and abroad. In 1949, he received the coveted Hallmark prize. A Carzou museum exists in the town of Dinard (Brittany).
